Bacon Wrapped Grilled Onion Slabs

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Onion Slabs, there is no one way to do them and they are super easy to do. They can be a different grilling adventure every time you make them! The only thing that can hold you back is your imagination! Bacon Wrapped Grilled Onion Slabs are a smoky sweet side that’s great for home or tailgating.

Give these a try, a thick slab of sweet onion, wrapped with thick sliced bacon, seasoned and topped with butter. They are just that easy, too. Cut, wrap, season, grill/smoke and a dab of butter. You can smoke them or grill them, whatever you have the time for.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Directions: Bacon Wrapped Grilled Onion Slabs

These are super simple. When I have the time I’ll just smoke for an hour or so before adding any heat to the grill. Then, I grill them for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees (205c). I give them a quarter turn at 5 minutes then flip them at 10 minutes. Cooking times will vary due to how thick you sliced your onions. I like the onion with a little firmness to it so basically you are cooking the bacon to your liking. I just season them and then put a dab of butter on them both at the beginning and end of the cook.

I like to use large sweet onions and slice them about 1 inch thick. Then wrap then with thick sliced pepper bacon but use what you like. It takes about 2 slices of bacon to go around one of these onion slices. Wrap the bacon around your onion and secure with the toothpicks. Season them add a pat of butter and you’re ready for the grill.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
